Kim Weaver — Director of External Affairs
Your Thrift Savings Plan account works a lot like other government functions, in at least one way. Contractors have responsibility for certain parts of administrating the TSP.
Getting an update on those contractors is just one of the things the Federal Retirement Thrift Investment Board reviewed at its monthly board meeting Monday.
Kim Weaver, the director of external affairs for the TSP, provides In Depth with an overview of the meeting.
Gordon Adams — Professor of U.S. foreign policy, American University
The Aerospace Industries Association estimated as many as 1 million jobs would be lost in the private sector if sequestration hits. But not everyone agrees with that analysis.
Gordon Adams, a professor of U.S. foreign policy at American University's School of International Service and a distinguished fellow at the Stimson Center, wrote in a blog post: "We're a long way from 'doomsday' and all the political hair tearing, garment rendering, and teeth gnashing."

Stan Soloway — President and CEO, Professional Services Council
A face-to-face meeting with the defense secretary was supposed to put industry at ease about the agency's preparation and plans for the across-the-board budget cuts known as sequestration.
Stan Soloway, the president and CEO of the Professional Services Council, was one of the industry leaders at the meeting.
Soloway, whose organization helped coordinate the meeting, discusses whether the confab is a sign sequestration will become a reality or rather that some sort of deal can be worked out.
